I came up with this entree one day when I was looking for something new and interesting to serve guests. The sausage makes the chicken even more hearty and satisfying.

"This was yummy! Although I didn't have some of the same ingredients, I substituted for the many of the ingredients.

I used Broccoli Cheese soup instead of Cream of Mushroom.
I used a package of frozen mixed veggies.
I used plain oatmeal instead of bread crumbs.
It turned out great & we had no leftovers!"
